Latocsha Sloan, Coroner Has Identified woman Killed In Greenville County Wrong Way Crash

Greenville County, SC – Greenville County Coroner’s Office Senior Deputy Coroner Shelton England reports that a woman was killed in a wrong-way crash in the county on Monday night. The victim was named as Grey Court resident Latocsha Sloan, 49, by the coroner’s office on Monday night. In the vicinity of mile marker 10, Sloan’s southbound Dodge Charger sedan was involved in a head-on collision with a Ford Bronco SUV about 5:40 p.m. on Interstate 185, according to England. “Unfortunately, that victim did lose their life and was pronounced dead on scene,” England explained. “The other driver of the other vehicle was transported with non-life-threatening injuries to the hospital.”

Connecting Interstate 85 to Interstate 385 is the toll-road connector, or I-185. Investigators think Sloan entered the motorway by driving from Highway 20 in the incorrect direction. According to England, this was Greenville County’s fourth fatal wrong-way collision since December. “We know that three of those crashes involved impaired drivers, so we encourage people to use other options,” England added. There is Uber. There is Uber. Give a friend a call. That is undoubtedly concerning because you shouldn’t drive.”
Just over a day has passed after two people in their 20s lost their lives in a different wrong-way collision on Interstate 385 close to Mauldin. That tragedy occurred on Monday night.

The Ford Bronco tumbled after the impact, and video showed it being flipped back onto its wheels. Soon after impact, according to officials, it also caught fire. The cause of the crash is being investigated, according to investigators. “We’re not saying that impaired driving was involved in this collision as we’re early on, but unfortunately, the numbers speak for themselves,” England explained. The autopsy for Sloan is set on Tuesday, according to the coroner’s office.
